CompositionALPHA-CD™ toxoid is prepared from chemically detoxified cultures of the above organisms with the special DD-2 adjuvant system to maximize immune response. Contains gentamicin as a preservative.
ALPHA-CD™ toxoid is recommended for the vaccination of healthy, susceptible cattle as an aid in the reduction of enterotoxemia caused by Clostridium perfringens Types C and D toxins. Immunity may be provided against the beta and epsilon toxins elaborated by Clostridium perfringens Type B. This immunity is derived from the combination of Type C (beta) and Type D (epsilon) fractions.
